A current world champion claims that he has reached out to offer Nathan Heaney a fight but he has not heard back

Stoke superstar Nathan Heaney (18-0-1, 6KO) is coming off the back of a frustrating draw last time out against Brad Pauls.

The fight took place in March in Birmingham for Heaney’s British middleweight title and saw the two men battle it out to a split draw with one scorecard of 114-114 alongside one which read 115-114 for Pauls and one that was 116-113 for Heaney.

The fight was a close one with plenty of action back and forth, which is why the judges found it so hard to split them after 12 competitive rounds.

Now, Dominican fighter Carlos Adames (23-1, 18KO), who presently holds the WBC Interim world middleweight title, has taken to social media to make the claim that he has sent a contract to Haney, but not heard back.

“My career has been difficult since my presentation against Sergiy Derevyanchenko and Montiel, Munguia ran for a year until he went to the 168, Jermall avoided me for two years until he “went to the 168”. Elijah says he is too young, Lara says he is weak.

“Canelo says I’m a risk and I don’t have a name, Janibek is scared… What do I do??! I sent a contract two months ago to Haney from England, who I thought would have the balls to fight and he never signed. Cowards!!”

Adames has held the WBC interim middleweight title since 2022 having previously challenged for the WBO interim super-welterweight title in 2019.

He is ranked as the #3 in his division by ESPN and has won 23 fights, 18 by knockout, and taken just one loss, so he would represent a real step up for Heaney who has been a pro for seven years and remains undefeated in his 19 fights.
